A Symbol of Royal Strength and Security
With impenetrable stone walls and a prime position on the River Thames in the heart of the capital, the Tower of London has been a symbol of royal strength and security for centuries of British monarchs. Each has left their own mark, woven into the history and traditions of the Tower. It was Edward III who was the first to decree in 1340, that every evening the gates should be locked in a ritual that came to be called the Ceremony of the Keys.
This nearly 700-year-old process of securing the Tower from night-time intruders is commemorated in the final coin of our Tower of London Collection. The Queen’s Keys and Chief Yeoman Warder’s lantern are captured in brilliant detail, while the unique Tower of London mint mark features on the official UK coin. This substantial coin is struck in five ounces of fine gold and finished to superior Proof standard – a beautiful piece of British history and tradition for any collection.
